#58 of 65 How's 12mpg for A Tundra
Mar 12, 2011 (8:27 am)
My father in law left his at my place in Vail. I use it to get wood.That's too bad what a waste.Around Eagle,Vail area staying off I 70 I get 12mpg, Highway maybe 20mpg.No wonder it's only has 5k on it and only 1 yr. old.
The oldman is a right wing wingnut and covered his NRA sticker with a sign sayin' 12mies a gallon.
I left it in Vail with a tarp over it as we are back East. He could of bought 2 round trip tickets to fly into Denver .I put 31 gallons in it and it cost me $105.24 $329.9 just to go 380 miles.

I CAN TELL YOU THIS SINCE GAS IN ANN ARBOR , MI WENT TO ALMOST $4 A GALLON I WORK ABOUT 56 MILES ONE WAY. I LEFT HOME 1HR AND 15 MIN EARLY AND I DECIDED TO TAKE MY LONG WORK COMMUTE AT 60 MPH AND I GOT 19 MPG. WELL THEN I SAID TO MY SELF HELL WHAT WOULD I GET IF I DROVE BACK HOME DOING 55 MPH. SO I DID THAT ON MY WHAY HOME REMEMBER SPEED LIMIT IN MI IS MIN OF 55 MPR AND ON MY WAY BACK HOME WHICH TOOK ME ONLY 15MIN MORE TRAVEL TIME TO GET HOME AND I GOT A GREAT 22 MPG. SO THERE IF YOUR NOT IN A HURRY TO GET WERE YOU WANT TO BE THEN IT GREAT FOR THE WALLET AND THE TUNDRA.

I have a 2000 Tundra 4.6L with a K&N and have used full synthetic for the past 50K, I have 108K on the truck now. I was getting 17.5 in mixed driving (mostly highway at 70-75 MPH). After I had the timing belt changed and new plugs, my MPG have gone down to around 16.5 on average with the same driving conditions. The engine feels like new, runs like new, but I am just not happy with the MPH after the "tune up" which feels like a tune down to me...that was around 18K ago...
#61 of 65 09 Tundra 4x4 MPG

Come on guys, all you tundra owners need to quit lying to yourselfs. I accepted & came to terms with the mpg my Tundra gets. Here's the figures driving it like theres an ege between the gas pedal & the floor. 11 city 14.7 hwy. This is horrific! I thought something was wrong till I talked to a Co. worker that had same truck. SAME MPG numbers. And dont go by that dumb computer on the dash. Toyota put that there to make us feel better. Calculate at the pump. "miles driven divided by gallons of gas used". Only way to get tru figures. Im going back to my 86 toyota 4 banger. Never let me down and get 23 on the hwy all day long, and is a lot funner & easier to work on. Accept what you get, you'll feel better after. Id sell while you still can before gas goes up anymore. Mines worth less than half of what I paid for it after only 55,000 miles. Just my 2 cents worth guys.

C'mon MAN !
Did any one here by a 5.7 V8 because of it's stellar fuel economy ? Nuh !
Don't get me wrong i wish my Tundra got 25 mpg and still hauled butt like it does but I never bought this truck for it's econmical milage. I bought it 'cuz the engine is AWESOME and it's a Toyota , my 11th and nairly a problem yet with any of them . And if there ever was they were on it like flies on smell!
My buddy bought the new Silverado and thought he was going to get 22 mpg as advertised with the 5.3 VCM engine and he is doing no better than me on mpg and i have 100 more hp and way more GRUNT. And mine hasn't brocken down like his has 3 times in the first year.

My truck is a 2011 TRD non Rock Warrior, now with approx. 8k mls. on the odo. The best the on board com. has said is 17.1, with the worst being 15.9. Actual real world best was 19.1, worst was 16.1. Checked it yesterday with a calculator and very little highway miles on that tank 18.3. I am in the process of slowly starting to pull the rpm's up to 5k+ for a clean break in, but I don't consistently abuse it. The fuel has been branded 87 and 89 octane ethanol fuel. When I'm on the highway I don't try to set speed records 65-75, and no cap or tonneau cover, also not loaded. You can believe it or not, I don't care.
Why the low or high numbers for people ? I presume maybe good tires and good habits equal high numbers, or bad tires and bad habits equal low numbers.....

I recently bought a 07 CM 5.7 and took it on trip. I used premium non-ethanol gas and achieved 19.9 mpg. Drove on interstate between 67-70 mph, then drove 3 days around town and drove halfway back home on the same tank with about 1000 lbs in the bed. I was pretty impressed with the mpg. If I wouldn't have drove it in town for those few days, I think I could have easily gotten 20+ mpg.
